Strawberry Spinach Salad with Raspberry Dressing

Berries add a pop of color to this favorite salad that’s part of my gluten-free menu. My challenge is to keep the family from eating the sugared almonds before I add them! —Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan —Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan

    This is a delicious salad. I added fresh Jersey blueberries, but everything else was the same. My husband liked it too.

    This is one of my favorite salads. Dressing is wonderful. I use red onion rings instead of green onion. I brown the almonds without sugar.

    This salad was delicious! I served it at a family pot luck and my sister asked if she could lick the bowl. It was that good! This will be a regular in my springtime menus!

    I substituted apple cider vinegar for the raspberry vinegar in the dressing and it was delicious. Even my 2 and 5-year old boys liked this salad. We loved the sugared almonds.

    My sixteen year old son said it was the best salad he has ever eaten....the whole family loved it. It compliments any dish or all by itself. Wonderful recipe.

    This salad tastes good, but I recommend adding more strawberries and maybe a bit more dressing.

    This is a refreshing salad with a wonderful dressing. I used regular worcestershire instead of gluten free. I served it at my daughter's graduation party and it was a hit!
